Whatever happened to 3DBatix.com...?


Hi,

I had just cut my first set of plans for the 3DBatix Extra 330 to shreds, when I thought I could go back and get the .pdf again, but ... argh the site of off line. Some junk page is on the domain name now (for me, at least).

Does anyone know what is going to happen to the 3DBatix plans, and where they can be downloaded from? It would be sad if we all lost them..

Regards
Soren

Hi,

OK I will answer that myself: An unknown hero has stored the plans on rcgroups ifself. Here´s a link to the link:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/atta...mentid=1946020

I had juuuust given up the search when I decided to give it one more try.

Well happy flying all of you. My weekend is saved

Regards
Soren

Anyone possibly have any of the other plane plans from their site? I would hate to lose them as they had some neat bi-planes I wanted to eventually try and build.

I was very impressed with their plans. I'm on my fourth Diablo 3D foamie. Flies nice. Lots of fun.

Here's the first three sets of plans out of five I pulled from the site. They represent the Diablo 3D, Extra 330 and the FoamE.

I'll upload the remaining two in a little bit.

Enjoy,

Chuck

Thanks guys for this thread. I, just like you, was disappointed to see that 3dbatix.com went down too.

Do any of you have the plans for the FOAMe3d that are not tiled? I was looking for the whole plan on one sheet.

Thanks again as I have saved all the plans on my computer now.

Maybe it will resurface again soon. They produced awesome designs.

SG Talon... Super Genius.
I thought i would bring this thread back.

3DBatix had some AWESOME foamie designs. Just love my Extra.

I am actually about to build my 4th!!

I built 2 for friends. Retired my first one and though i could improve on the design so i changed it a bit for my second. Big mistake. You can't improve perfection. I just watered down what made it such an awesome plane.

Build it to plans and you will be very happy.

Yep, you can't improve perfection, much. I have built 2 extras and on the last one I used 2 aileron servos and I didn't cut out any holes for the ele,rud servos(ala DW foamies). I just epoxied them on in hopes of strengthening the fuse a bit.
I think the pitts bipe needs to be built next. Anyone build that one yet. There isn't much about it out in the internet land.

Here you go. Bumping the thread. About to finally build a 3dBatix plane. I'm going to try a slightly scaled Diablo to replace my Depron Yak I just destroyed.
